didn't say nothing about religion. there's a woman in there. he beat those ministers. it's chilling how good he is. can he bring it back? can he bring back the love? >> well, you know -- >> i think it's there, myself. >> if obama had lost and if that could in some way have been blamed on the clintons even if he got the nomination and lost because they were insufficiently supported or something like that, i think there would be some lingering feelings. but he won. and he won again. and there's no reason to hold a grudge, i think. >> i like to be the sunshine guy around here, joy as you know. not going to be debbie downer in this world. i think one good thing is going to come out of this administration. it's going to be a mixed bag so far. it's been tough and he's done some great things. like health care. and i think the thing with encouraging equality of people with different orientation. women, a third of the supreme court are now women. stock market, if you're rich through the roof, you have a 401(k) through the roof. a lot of these are good. but i noticed this administration, the way
of catholic charities, the charity work that our religion and other religions, it's a common goal to help poor and sick people. most of the religious in our countries today run hospitals, orphanages. and the idea that we have too much inequality out there, saying capitalism is okay, being rich is fine, but you have to focus on the people that don't have a piece of the action. it's not like he was running the creed here at all. >> he was talking about the idolatry of money, which i thought was a wonderful line. he talked about the globalization of indifference. this is what you want with the whole world catholic or not. somebody that gets them to think about fundamental issues and that returns them to the kinds of things that jesus did say, you know, according to catholicism. so this is at the heart of modern ultra conservatism as represented be rush limbaugh. he said that the real evil is indifference as you just said so well. we'll be right back after this. >>> let me finish tonight with this, peek always ask me who i . for aveeno® positively radiant face moisturizer.
